NRPE not functioning right.



  • I am trying to get NRPE to communicate with my Nagios server hosted separately. When i check the logs, I see the below output for it.

    May 8 10:24:28 	nrpe[84451]: Daemon shutdown
    May 8 10:24:28 	nrpe[84451]: Cannot remove pidfile '/var/run/nrpe2.pid' - check your privileges.
    May 8 10:24:28 	nrpe[84451]: Caught SIGTERM - shutting down...

    May 8 10:08:36 	nrpe[84451]: Listening for connections on port 0
    May 8 10:08:36 	nrpe[84451]: Warning: Daemon is configured to accept command arguments from clients!
    May 8 10:08:36 	nrpe[84451]: Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 5666.
    May 8 10:08:36 	nrpe[84451]: Server listening on :: port 5666.
    May 8 10:08:36 	nrpe[84451]: Starting up daemon
    

    I am also trying to figure out how i can get the arguments that the different plugins will accept. the one i am interested in is the check_ifstatus. I use a slightly modified version of this one for my switch and other network gear. The name of that plugin is check_snmp_ifstatus.pl Any help with this is very much appreciated.
